TRC w/c Monday 16th November during Lockdown2

The most recent Government directives for Lockdown2 mean we will not be able to meet on a Tuesday or Thursday for 4 weeks from 5th November until 2nd December as we must all ‘Stay at Home’

‘Stay at Home’ means you must not leave or be outside of your home except for specific purposes. This includes exercise outdoors with the people you live with, with your support bubble or, when on your own, with 1 person from another household

Full details are here…

1. Lockdown2 Busters.
To keep us running together whilst apart during lockdown Captain Kevin will be posting two events each week: Kevin posts The Virtual Tuesday efforts on the Members Facebook page on a Monday and the Route of the week also on the Members Facebook page.
Thanks to all those who took part on week 1 of the ‘Lockdown Busters’, the ‘Route of the Week’ and ‘Virtual Tuesday’. This week there will be two routes of week, one on road from Steve Dimond and the other off road from Lizzie Williams. It would be great to see more people joining in and sharing their comments. Do both and tell us your favourite. The two routes and the session for Tuesday will all be published on Facebook only. If you do not have access to Facebook and want to take part please e-mail and Kevin will forward the information to you.
